    Answered . More information is needed. How long has your boyfriend been living in the United States? Has he been convicted of a crime? If so, when? How long ago did he commit the offense?

    I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney as soon as possible. Good luck.
